learning something new every day

If I ever do have a dull moment or two, there’s always the internet. Just a click or two away the world awaits! I know everyone has his/her own favorites, but at least a couple of weird things have caught my attention lately and I’d really like to share them with you.

A museum open in Kentucky in the spring of 2007 that presents an account of the origins of the universe–life, mankind, and man’s early history according to the literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis. Brought to fruition by an Australian who moved to this country in 1987, it’s called the Creation Museum, and hopes to recruit converts of all its visitors who aren’t Christians already. It rejects evolution theory, asserting that the Earth and all of its life forms were created 6000 years ago over a six-day period. Its exhibits incorporate the idea that humans and dinosaurs once coexisted, and that dinosaurs were on Noah’s Ark, all in stark contrast to the scientific community’s determination that the earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old, and that the dinosaurs became extinct 65.5 million years before humans showed up.

I gotย  not only a little glimpse into the Museum itself, but figuratively saw it myself in pictures, both word and digital, through the eyes of a science-based educated non-Christian in this blog post he calls “Kentucky Fried Creation.” If, like me, you’re interested in seeing but not really enough to go to the bother of actually going there, you may enjoy what he has to show and tell.

Now, if you’ve had trouble with the big “C”-word lately, no not cancer because as a survivor I’ve demoted that c-word to small letters; no, I mean the one that means elimination. Did I hear a yes somewhere in the back row? Would it surprise you if I say that you may be wearing the wrong bra? Does yours have an underwire? Actually, the last few years I’ve found it hard to find any other kind, and I don’t have a bust size that really requires underwire support. You may want to read this inspiring “weird science” post. Live and learn. Really!

Just in case, that’s not enough diversion for your Monday, I invite you to enjoy this YouTube visit with this toddler who has a lot of serious stuff to say. It takes her about four minutes if you can spare the time. Just a thought: this may possibly be the first female president of the United States. See for yourself:

  1. Skipping the first part, I suggest Victoria’s Secret for the non wired bras. Elly who is very well endowed swears by them. Each time she goes across the pond she stocks up. As for the young lady in the video, she will go places!

    • Y’know, I haven’t been in a Victoria’s Secret for years! Used to go there with my then teen-age daughters. VS stuff is pretty, but expensive, (I get my Maidenforms at a discounted store) and my underwear comes up to the natural waistline or just below it. I’m the real granny in granny underwear! Sorry it took me so long to reply! So much to do, so little time! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I always wear the underwire kind – it’s an absolute necessity, but I never have a big “C” problem, ever. Loved the toddler video. If that museum has large attendance numbers, the world is in big trouble.

    • I’m sorta glad I’ve never needed underwire, just happened though the best fitting bra found had one so I wear it anyway! See other comment to see what happens when I take it off… ๐Ÿ™‚ The museum in fact claims that they have exceeded the numbers expected, but I’m pretty sure they don’t sway a lot of people from the other religions. Most are probably too educated to buy it. Thanks for sharing.

  3. LOL The lil’ girl is a cutie and makes more sense than the average politician.

    As to the bra thing, I learned a that a bra that fits properly is the key and getting fitted at a good department store occasionally is really helpful. That said, now that I don’t work I like sports bras or those lycra camisole tops with the built-in bras — they’re comfortable and inexpensive which is a winning combination any day in my book.

    • Yesterday I was doing laundry in the basement; wanted to wash everything including the bra I had on, so I pulled my top off and removed it, threw it into the wash and you wouldn’t believe what happened! Yep! Good thing there’s a bathroom down there! ๐Ÿ™„ Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh, I used to be a simple 36B. I won’t tell you what giant size I am now. I need a gantry crane to bring things up to a fashionable height, and most larger bras are erector set like in their capabilities. LOL

    • What’s a gantry crane. (I guess I can google it, huh?) I have exactly the opposite problem than you. When I lie on my back, everything disappears, unless I happen to have a pimple. When I was a teen, I wore two bras trying to compensate and fill my dress fronts. ๐Ÿ™„ Thanks for your beautiful word pictures in your response. ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. Very Fine Sure she would make a better head of the state than any one else who thinks that he or she is born to rule and cause hardships to all in the name of austerity. Don’t allow her to go to school. Let the mothers and grandmothers go instead to learn how to be innocent and radiate innocent joy. N

  7. Little girl is great!

    Creation Museum is bad science, though the people were nice and the cafe had farily good food. The best part for me was the petting zoo!

    If you want to understand Genesis, vist my blog where you will read the latest research and good science.

    • Glad you enjoyed the little girl video. As for your website, it looks like an interesting place to explore. Hope to get there again soon.

It's always nice to know what you're thinking...
